During the course of obtaining his Bachelor of Science, Mark Hagen concentrated on nutrition and zoology and attended a semester at the University of California, Davis, taking courses in cage bird medicine, nutrition and avian science.
He has a Masters degree in agriculture from the University of Guelph, specializing in Psittacine Aviculture.
A firm believer in sharing his knowledge and experiences, Mark Hagen, director of HARI has published dozens of research papers relating to the work at HARI, including egg incubation, oil and nutrition, formulated diets, husbandry and sanitation disease control, cage design, ventilation, and pediatric care.
Many of his papers have been presented at most of the avicultural conferences held in the USA, Canada and Australia.
Between the three professionals we are clearly not dealing with people who have been simply interacting with birds for any number of years.
At the end of the day the people at HARI want to ensure that the bird in your home is on the best nutritional program that is available based upon their collective knowledge base.
Because of their influence worldwide you can find many of their videos translated into four languages.
The videos that Josee and Melanie produce provide compelling reasons to feed your captive birds Tropican and Tropimix from the HARI line of avian nutrition products.
Their videos cover not only nutrition but real-time issues like Introducing Parrots to the Travel/Transport Carrier” and “Desensitization Parrots to Nail Grooming”
Of the many videos that they offer this one about “PRIME Vitamins for Birds on Seed Based Diets” helps us understand the need for supplementation to birds on it all seed diet

Loveyourparrot Education is a relative newcomer to YouTube with videos going back one year (at the original time of this post).
Traci guides us through a plethora of bird care topics ranging from pellet conversion, bird adoption, bathing and even a bird dance party.
We especially love Henry and Axel because they are Senegal’s and we love Senegal’s.
Her style is less voice over and more images of birds interacting within their environments.
She’s got a number of species, as I go through the videos I saw.
- a double yellow headed Amazon
- the two aforementioned Senegals
- a Quaker parrot
- a Catalina macaw
- a sun conure
- a Ruby macaw
- a lineolated parakeet
- a green cheek conure
- a cherry headed conure.
If you read this Traci and I missed a bird let me know, we will gladly add it.
She’s really big into nutrition including super foods and has one of the nicest bird rooms I’ve seen in a long time.
Planned out well in spite of the multiple species, very bright and very clean.
Enjoy the tour
